We have been using Scratch in Computing to create a Sprite and our own background. We looked at how to make a chain of code to make our character move. We also spent some time applying our problem solving skills to coding and spotted and rectified any mistakes.
Science shadow investigation
We have been looking at how the length and position of a shadow changes during the day as part of our Science unit Light. We took measurements at various points in the day and recorded our results. We then translated these results into a graph before drawing our conclusion.
In Year 6 we have been looking at the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them. We created our own shadow puppets to help us understand the scientific statement. We really enjoyed being creative.
Year 5 and Year 6 had a visit from Bully Busters. During this session, they learnt about the different types of bullying, how bullying makes people feel and also how they can combat bullying.
Investigating how exercise can affect your heart rate
Year 6 enjoyed completing a Science experiment in their PE lesson. We investigated how exercise can affect your heart rate and the reasons for it.
Midsummer Nights Dream
Year 6 really enjoyed taking part in a Midsummer Nights Dream at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park.
They were amazing in their performance and we were all very proud of them.
Here is a photograph of them in their costumes on the day of the big performance.
Comparing People and Places
During our topic Comparing People and Places, we looked at various places around the world. We linked this with Design and Technology and created models of the Peruvian Andes from a range of materials. The end results were fantastic! Here is a photograph of the children enjoying being creative.
Speak out Stay safe workshop
Year 6 took part in a workshop which was delivered by the NSPCC. The workshop was called Speak out Stay safe. The Speak out Stay safe programme gives a generation of children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect.
Shakespeare Schools workshop
Year 6 attended Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park to take part in a Shakespeare Schools workshop. We learned how to project our voices in a large space, use the stage to full effect and how to engage with the audience.
